Saskatchewan joined the Flood Damage Reduction Program in 1977 signing a General and combined Mapping and Studies Agreements. The 500-year flood was used to designate flood risk areas in 17 communities. The designated areas are divided into two zones, the floodway, where further development is discouraged, and the flood fringe, where flood proofed development is possible. Flood plain management studies were undertaken in Eastend, Swift Current, Lumsden and Regina.
A sub-agreement on Flood Forecasting helped Saskatchewan improve its system of flood forecasting in the southern part of the province.
